    This is to piggy back on Chad's comment about Importing from other Stories/Tasks.
    Like Chad we set up smaller projects that get negatively impacted by the amount of time it takes to setup in TeamPulse. Here's a couple of ideas that I think could add great value.
    • Define a project or Story based on a template (effectively copying a pre-existing project as a base line)
                   - maintain 'areas' and 'tags' previously defined with that template.
    • Import a set of tasks that commonly occur within a standard user story.
                   - maintain pert estimates per task.
    Thanks, Mark

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for the great feedback.  Creating a project with pre-defined areas and tags is not something that we have in the backlog but I have now added it and we will consider making this part of a future release.  The tag part might be a bit tricky though because the way tags work right now is that a tag only exists if it is being used by some story, bug, issue, or risk.  As soon as all the usages are removed, the tag is also removed.  We would have to change this behaviour to allow a tag to exist even if it's not being used.  We have some "tag management" features in the backlog, but no timeline yet for when we might implement them.

    For your second request, we already have an item very similar to this in the backlog and I have added another vote for it.  It is quickly becoming a highly requested feature and I agree that it would provide a lot of value.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
